Sweet cecily's soothing skin cream
Sweet Cecily's is a brand I've worked with before reviewing their cute lip balms. Their products are handmade using natural ingredients; I've loved all of the products I've tried so far and this one is no exception! I was kindly sent the *Sweet Cecily's Soothing Skin Cream (£10 sale, 120ml) which contains Propolis, Borage and Hemp that soothe the skin. 

As with all Sweet Cecily's products, I love the packaging, it is cute and unique. Now, I have to be honest and say that the scent isn't amazing, neither is the colour - it definitely has an earthy hemp scent to it which I am not used to in any of the products I currently use but thankfully it isn't really strong and the scent isn't very prevalent at all when on the skin after a while. 

When ignoring the colour and scent, it is a really nice product to use. I have been using it on the eczema on my hand for the past couple of weeks now and it obviously doesn't get rid of my eczema as it isn't an eczema treatment or steroid cream but it really helps moisturise the skin making it look far less flaky, sore and dry. It also does feel like it is soothing and it relives the feeling of tight, uncomfortable skin that sadly comes with having eczema. I've also been using it on my cuticles and elbows as it's great for reducing dryness! It's a fantastic soothing, emollient cream for the new patch of eczema that has developed at my hairline too. A little goes a long way so I think this large 120ml tub will last me a while. 

I do find that I get the most out of the cream in the evenings as I apply the cream then my cotton gloves and in the morning my skin is much better in terms of dryness and tightness. I wouldn't really use this all of the time during the day as on my skin it can be a little greasy; however as I said I just use this at night on the whole so it isn't an issue for me. 

Overall, a great emollient thick cream which is almost balm like. It moisturises, soothes and helps with the dryness and tightness of the skin that comes with the eczema that I have but it is also great for general dryness too. Sweet Cecily's has a fantastic range of skincare, lip balms and gifts such as a make your own face mask set and a make your own lip balm set - both of which you can personalise which I think is a genius gift idea! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Have you tried anything from Sweet Cecily's? Do you have eczema, if so what products do you recommend?

  2. Aside from the hempy scent, which I too dislike, this does sound nice :)

  3. I've never tried this brand before but the packaging looks very cute indeed. I'm not sure how keen I would be on the scent though x
